If your running foams on carpet, the Tossilini Nats set-up is dialed!

for motors the Reedy one seems to be most peoples choice now. For foams I always liked jaco but the new parma tires are supposed to be good as well.

The Reedy 19 turn is by far the most consistent from can to can. The C2 is fast when you get a good one. You can't go wrong with the Reedy. Thanks to pops for turning me in the right direction on the motor when I was ready to give up on it. It like a lot of gear.

stock is a good place to start with it, no reason to make if too fast for practice, you might as well use what you bought then replace it with what makes it more efficient

www.rc4less.com or you can go to your local hobby shop, if you want a fast C2 design motor (I mean killer fast) go to kinetix.com and look for the EA Motorsports 19t they are super efficient and very fast, the guy knows what he is doing with the motor

Agreed, I ended up last night with the same gearing i was using with a stock (7.55 on a fairly short track). By the way if you have any tuning tips for the motor, it's the first time i use a 19T (I'm more used to mod).

I like Reedy 769 brushes with a 7oz spring on the neg and a 9oz spring on the pos. Along with the brush and spring deal you need to make sure that you center the arm and align the brush hoods. If you can get a hold of some high silver mod brushes that are lay down use them with some heavy 12oz springs. This motor like to be gear high at times. I've seen it ballistic from 5.6- 6.27 Reedy really killed them with this motor.

If you're looking for a good place to get the motor always support your local hobby shop but if you have to mail order take a look at www.brahmaracingproducts.com

We have been running that Reedy at 5.88 on a large open track, that motor just beggs for more gear. Try going higher higher when you get a chance, you won't believe it.

I'm only going to use it indoors, so I'm not going to gear it that much up, I'll gear up gradualy to see how it handles it though.

Racer's had it geared at 5.6 on the carpet track yesterday. I had mine at 5.9 and was looking for more.
